Critter People is an in-the-works series created by Hailey Waguespack (@PepperRavenBat on Wattpad) in collaboration with her friend Dustin Estrelles (@-DUSTINMAO on Wattpad).

Overview: What if anthropomorphic animals lived with us humans, but they grew and changed the same way we did? What problems would they have had to face? How would this effect our society? These ideas are explored in an alternate version of our world through the perspective of Jezabel and Haneul, two young teens living in a small town in Southeastern Louisiana with interesting lives and big dreams. Together, they explore the world around them, where diversity is celebrated, discoveries are made and musical numbers are merely a part of one's imagination.

Cast: Hailey Waguespack as Jezabel Barnaba, Dustin Estrelles as Kim Haneul
